Wow only a few months! Looks like they are too predatory for my as well.

I have a line on a good deal for an aquaclear 110 that I'm going to pair with my canister filter. Can I use it for biological filtration mostly? I was thinking of filling it with seachem matrix and hyposorb? or purigen. Covering the intake with a sponge or something.

Setting up a new Cory tank 90g

Yup a Lot of killifish only live 6-10 months, as in the wild the puddles they live in dry up for ~half the year! It's fascinating actually there eggs can be stored dry for months and then with the rain they hatch, but not all do(because sometimes it will dry up again), so if you do it artificially you have to redry the non hatched eggs and wait a week and try again!
Truly magnificent!


AquaClears are fully customizable, so you can add anything you want...

There are plenty of fish to choose. Don't worry you will find a good choice.

There are many Killis that don't die every year.

Ok, so I filled the tank and installed the new aqua clear 110 using filter media from my 306 that is running on the temporary 10 gallon. Problem is I'm not sure when I can add my corys to it. The filter they are using is cycled, but the ac110 is not and after 4 days it looks like I have a bacterial bloom (cloudy water) in the 90g. Is it safe to install the cycled 306, then move the corys or do I now have to wait until the bloom is gone and the ac110 is cycled as well?

Current ammonia lvls are below 2ppm with just the ac110 running and no fish, but the water is cloudy, indicating the start of a cycle. Will it clear up once I move the cycled filter in, or will my fish die? I'm thinking I can move them in, forgo feeding til ammonia is 0 again...I'm just not sure about the cloudy water as they've never been in cloudy water before.

Ammonia is at 0.5 - 1.0ppm and nitrites at 0. Nitrates between 10-20 which is normal for our tap water. The water is clearer than it was yesterday so after today, if parameters stay the same, I am going to install the 306. Will my fish be OK for a few hours in the 10 gallon with just the air pump going?

My next dilemma is choosing an appropriate led. At 26" deep, I'm concerned the current sat + I was going to buy won't be enough light even for low light plants.

I have one on my 55 but when I moved it to the 90, at its brightest it seemed dark.

Will the finnex ray 2, finnex 24/7 or the current plus pro be brighter?

You might want to run the air pump with the fish and a heater as well so they don't get chilled, but to err on the side of cooler than too warm. The cycled 306 will be automatically cycled enough to still handle the ammonia as it had done previously.

The 110 will take about a month to build good BB are you continuing to run them together? -forever or just til the 90 is good to go?

I emptied the 90 and am filling it halfway with ro water currently. I'm also changing the filter over now and will have it running while I catch all my fish. Before they're transferred to the 90 I will fill the second half of the tank with tap. I'm going to drip acclimate them for an hour before letting them loose. I feel like that should ensure a safe transfer. Then I'm going to order an led....just need to figure out which one.
